Micah wrote the sixth of the twelve prophetic books of the Old Testament and
was active in the last half of the eighth century B.C. His book warns that God
will punish idolaters, those who are unjust to men of lesser station, and religious
men who use their profession for financial gain. The latter half of the work,
also called the "Promises," seems to date from a much later period
than Micah's and foresees the ultimate restoration of the state of Israel, in
which Yahweh will rule directly over a peaceful kingdom.
